HMS Ark Royal, a British Aircraft Carrier Sea
Both the UK and the USA move most of their troops around the world by sea.

There will be no significant fighting at sea as Iraq is almost entirely surrounded by land.

Britain and America will launch planes and helicopters from ships such as HMS Ark Royal to attack the land, and drop-off troops inside Iraq.

There are American ships in the Gulf which carry missiles, and these may also be used against Iraq.
